Passover begins this weekend and we've seen plenty of Angelenos stocking up for seders. We saw items for the holiday at the Burbank Costco (but they didn't have the dancing Matzo Man (shown at right) for sale like at Walgreens on Wilshire Blvd near Formosa):Yehuda Passover Matzos at $5.99 for 5 1lb boxes. But how do they taste?

Costco also had 64 oz jars of Rokeach Gefilte fish for $5.79 and 6.75 oz bottles of Kadem Grape juice for $5.98.

Still pondering recipes? has some pretty good menu suggestions and no-fail matzo ball recipes.

In our search for all things Passover LA, we happened upon a recommendation for Kosher Champagne over on the Chowhound LA-board. Chowhound is coming out with new guides in print. Unfortunately, New York and San Francisco are the first cities covered, but LA shouldn't be too far behind.

So what's on your seder menu this year?
